It feels nice to see some of the result of one’s work being shown off in the promotional material for the Norwegian feature film Amundsen which premiered on Feb 15th. I worked for Filmgate on, among many other assets, the ship seen to the right in the image below.

Never Again ◎ – Rickard Eklund & John Salquist

Published August 22nd, 2017 View post

I am happy to announce an art exhibition I have been working on together with Rickard Ljungdahl Eklund, it will be opening on September 15 as part of the GIBCA Extended program:

In the exhibition Never Again ◎, Eklund and Salquist explore the Claviceps purpurea, an ergot fungus that grows on the ears of rye, wheat and barley, and has caused outbreaks of mysterious suffering throughout the ages. It may also have been at the core of a forgotten psychedelic ceremony.

The exhibition follows an ethno-botanical trail and iconography from popular culture to ancient times and the Eleusinian Mysteries. For 2,000 years, this goddess-focused rite was practised every September, providing a mythological explanation of seasonal change, and a way of overcoming the fear of death. The exhibition adds a black grain of historic significance to the biennial GIBCA as a recurring myth-conveying festival, and its deiknumena, ‘things shown.’

Rickard Eklund and John Salquist studied at Valand School of Fine Arts. This is their first exhibition together at the artist-driven Upper Hand gallery in Gårda, Gothenburg.

Opening Hours: Tuesday–Friday 1–5 pm, Saturday–Sunday 12 noon–4 pm

Upper Hand, Tritongatan 5, Gothenburg, Sweden

Blender Conference 2016

Published November 1st, 2016 View post


I just got back from this years Blender Conference in Amsterdam. This was my first time attending the conference, but hopefully not my last, as I had a great time and met some nice and interesting people (including a few from my own country). Apart from the people and the many inspiring talks, I also quite enjoyed the general atmosphere and actually seeing the diversity and potential of the Blender community in person.
